Good Morning Everyone!.... Happy Monday! =)
I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. Mine went pretty well... (I'll tell you more about that later).
But first, today I have not one, but TWO cards to share with you all. Both are very similar to each other and both were made specifically for challenges.
Now don't you see how similar the challenges were?.... Both of them had similar layouts.
Here are some close-ups of my second card:
In case it isn't obvious, twine has become one of my new favorite embellishments. =) And i'm really happy that I finally got to you use my "On My Couch" set from Papertrey Ink. I have had the set for so long now, but I just haven't had the chance to get around to using it. (I hate when that happens).... But for this challenge I finally managed to reach for it and put it to good use!
As for my weekend, if you read my last post, I mentioned how I was going to be taking a class on Copic Markers on Saturday. Well I did, and I absolutely loved it! I guess you could say it was the start of my soon-to-be "new addiction". Haha!...
I took the class at my local stamp store here, in South Florida. The class was taught by Colleen Schaan. She's a Regional Instructor for Copics and she's absolutely amazing. This girl definitely knows her stuff! =) She was super sweet and very helpful. We worked on three different cards in the class and practiced different types of blending techniques and other little tricks that Colleen shared with us. If you're interested in checking out Colleen's classes or learning more about her, then you can visit her blog HERE.
I definitely had a great time at her class and i'm looking forward to putting my new knowledge to use. I will try to post the cards that we made in the class on my blog soon, and I'll also try to post some of the tips that I learned when I get the chance.
Well, I hope everyone enjoys their Monday today... hopefully the week will go by pretty fast!
Thanks so much for reading! =)
